Mission Statement

Utah Animal Adoption Center is dedicated to reducing the tragedies of pet overpopulation and animal suffering and eliminating euthanasia as a means of pet-population control in Utah's shelters, since 1983. UAAC does not euthanize healthy animals. We accomplish this mission through various programs, including rescues, low-cost spaying/neutering, humane education, and a successful horse-rescue and adoption program.

Description

Utah Animal Adoption Center prioritizes saving unclaimed, unadopted yet friendly animals from being euthanized at traditional animal-control shelters and The Humane Society of Utah. UAAC is Utah's largest and oldest no-kill animal rescue organization, serving Utah's orphaned companion animals since 1983. In 2007 the organization moved to a new 3.5 acre sanctuary at north of downtown Salt Lake City, where we shelter, neuter, feed, provide routine and emergency veterinary care for about 45 dogs, 70 cats, and 2 of our "Ambassador" rescued horses awaiting adoption. With 6 paid staff and dozens of dedicated volunteers and participating vets, UAAC saves and finds homes for about 1,600 orphaned animals every year, earning us the honor of "Petsmart Charities' National Humane Organization of the Year" in 2001.
